This law firm was founded on the idea that people are the most important element to the success of any endeavor and, for Barefoot Family Law, the most important people are the people that we help every day. We understand and respect that, if you are reading this, you are likely experiencing some of the most difficult times of your life or are considering decisions that may lead to disruption and uncertainty. Most people who read this are trying to choose the person, an attorney, with whom they will share details about their lives that they have sometimes not shared with their closest friends or family and they are looking for someone to stand up for them and guide them through the challenge of divorce.
Barefoot Family Law has been recognized by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers as a “Best Law Firm”, in part, we believe, because we make the commitment to each person that we help through divorce that he or she will be in the hands of a capable, experienced and respected professional, who will be an effective advocate for his or her interests, who is concerned in the conference room and confident in the courtroom, and that each person we help will get honest, objective advice gained from having over 25 years of combined experience practicing family law. Both Caldwell Barefoot and Mariana Godwin are North Carolina Board Certified Specialists in Family Law. Our motivation and our measure of success come from looking after the people who have chosen us from among many options, and we recognize that trusting us at a vulnerable time places upon us a great responsibility. We take that responsibility seriously and hope that you will let us help you.
